Who is liable in a dog bite injury?


You may be wondering if the owner of the dog who caused injury was ultimately responsible. The answer is yes, but other people can share in that liability too. Florida law prescribes the responsibility for animal injuries to the owner of the animal. That means that the owner, either through their own means, homeowners’ insurance, or sometimes the premises of where they take their dog will have a source of recovery because of the owner’s duty to safeguard injury committed by their animal to others. We hold those owners accountable if their dogs have caused injury to others.
